A Very nice review on Amazon - Thank You Ptmeem!

" 5.0 out of 5 stars Making Every Day Special, November 20, 2009 By ptmeem - See all my reviews This review is from: Life In A Week, About Being Really Happy (Hardcover) Michael Keller is obviously the perfect combination of practicality and positivity. I found myself smiling and nodding in agreement with his approach to life throughout the book. If you've ever had a bad day, become frustrated or angry, you need this book. He'll show you how to deal with negatives and turn them around. Like band aids in the bathroom cabinet, this book should be on your nightstand for emergency use." I LOVE THE "LIKE BAND AIDS IN THE BATHROOM CABINET" - wow, thanks and if any of you bought the book from Amazon please post a review - it really helps with the ratings! Have a fun day, Mike

Lead based paint (a strange but important posting)

As of this month there is finally strictor renovation rules (entire country) that are in effect for contractors dealing with homes, schools, and child care facilites! As of April 2010, contractors performing renovation, repair and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint must be certified and follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination! Long-term lead exposure to children under the age of six can cause developmental brain problems, it doesn't take a lot of lead to be hazardous to one's health. So if you live in an old home built before 1978 and have some renovations done please MAKE SURE that your contractor is certified and registered by the EPA. Why make the house look nice and your lungs and brain feel sluggish. Have a great day and don't forget to smile and wave to some strangers today!

We are only on this earth for a little while so we really need to make the best of our limited time. I often wonder how ready I am to enter into the next life? If today is my last day and tomorrow never comes who will remember me, who will miss me, but more importantly who have I helped to have a happier life? Is it true that when he is out of sight, he is quickly out of mind? What helps me to enjoy life every day may seem cold or even gloomy, but it helps to remind me that our time is limited so we really should make the most of it; In the morning I consider for a moment the fact that I may not live till the evening. By living this way death will never take me by surprise and I will never have to move onto the next stage with unfinished business here on earth. These thoughts remind me never to go to bed arguing with a loved one, not to be rude to anyone, to say thank you more often, to help others and to never get greedy. Death is a fact of life that is a certainty and when we face that fact we will live a much happier life. Each night as you lay your head on your pillow and think about the day that had just past and you can you can smile and know that you did the best that you could and can be satisfied by the events of the day, then you should be happy to be where you are. When you have problems don’t try to tackle them in one day, just chip away a little piece at a time so that you won’t waste the entire day in that homemade stress, trust me when I say “It doesn’t even matter, just be happy.” Sometimes we are in places in life where we think “the grass is greener on the other side of the fence.” I often wonder what people are thinking, I can sit on a bench at the casino or at the beach and watch people walk by and wonder by the expressions on their faces what they are thinking and where they are.I wonder if they know how lucky they are to be in such a great setting, maybe with their friends and family or even just a little getaway for the moment. By sitting back and people watching for a few minutes I realize that I too have it good and that I am in a good place. If we know where we are in life we will make our own destinies by our thoughts and habits; then we will be able to decide which paths in life to take and in turn better our lives while we are here. While sitting back on that bench at the beach yesterday I noticed that a dog kept returning to its own vomit and I wondered why and realized that we do the same thing when we stress out on issues that don’t even matter.

A few words from Life In A Week; A book about being really happy!

Everyone is here for a reason, and that reason is to express ourselves and bring happiness and joy to this world. When we have happy thoughts filled with love and goodness, it will radiate through us naturally in our voices, expressions, and our vibes. When I feel like I’m going to have a stressful day or a difficult time, I will. When I feel like it’s going to be a great day filled with laughter, it will be. Our thoughts are what make us up; therefore, our thoughts are who we are. You can be the most handsome guy or the prettiest girl at the dance, but if you don’t know it, it won’t matter because you’re not going to dance much. However, if you thought positively with love, then you would know what a hot ticket you really are, and you would have the confidence to ask anyone to dance. You would have a great time because love attracts love. Love yourself for who you are, and you will be surrounded by love. Treat people with love, and most will respond likewise. If someone is mean-spirited to you when you were only good to them, don’t let it bother you. If you let their negativity enter into your thoughts, you are only giving that negativity power. What I do is simply walk away and wish that person goodwill and peace. If I can’t just walk away due to the circumstances, I will never react in the same negative way, no matter what. Always try to treat others how you would want to be treated. Do not treat others how they treat you. Maybe your smile or your brushing off of the rude words spoken to you will eventually plant the seed of goodness and love into the negative person’s heart and, therefore, their thoughts. When we walk around knowing we are good and helping everyone we can, we will radiate that love through our vibes, expressions, and body language; we will pass it along to everyone we meet. That happiness and love really is contagious, so hold that door open for the next person, say hello to the old guy on the park bench, ask the cashier how her dayis going, and you will make a difference in someone else’s day. That difference will not only be contagious to them, but also to you; your thoughts will stay more positive, therefore making your day better and healthier.
